Fascinating to see artistic creations made of glass dramatically displayed in white halls. Favorite exhibits were making glass goblet, shattering glass, and demonstrating optic fiber.

We stopped at the Corning Museum of Glass enroute from Niagara Falls to New York. We expected to see just some glass artifacts in a small building so decided to purchase the discounted tickets after 4 pm. This was a bad decision though! The museum is quite impressive and huge. They have shows demonstrating new innovations, glass breaking, creating glass... More

The Corning Museum of Glass offers a history of over 5,000 years of glass-making with a truly awesome number of museum pieces. Additionally, there are contemporary sections with truly amazing modern art composed entirely of glass. There are "hot" areas where you are invited to watch artisans blow works of art out of molten glass. There is a "Make Your... More

This was our first visit here and we were very impressed. What a great museum! We enjoyed it so much we came back a second day (included in the ticket) to see as much as we could. I'm not sure we saw it all but we spent about 6 hours here in total. We highly recommend the docent tour in... More

The Corning museum of glass is a fun way to spend a day and you will need at least a day. The active workshop to make a glass flower was well worth the extra money. Tickets are good for two days and since the Rockwell Museum is included an overnight is a good idea. The layout is a little confusing,... More

You can easily spend a full day in this museum. Plan ahead of time by making reservation to "Make Your Own Glass" workshops in the afternoon . Your projects are available to pick up the next day. The contemporary exhibition in the new wings are great ... lot of great master piece. Review the time table and map out the... More

This is the quintessential Glass Museum in the world. It is impossible to imagine that there is a better collection anywhere else, nor one as well curated. The objects range from Ancient Egyptian relics to Modern American artists. The depth and breath of the collection is truly astonishing, and they have some of the best masterpieces ever created in glass,... More

this is a major attraction of the area and well deserved. We were here 20 years ago and enjoyed it with small children then and didn't expect the wonderful changes they have wrought. Perhaps a little less interesting to small children but for teen aged children on up, it offers much to enjoy. The thrills for me were the art... More

We were very impressed with this museum. Joined a guided tour of the history of glass, watched some cool demonstrations and spent some time in the modern art collection--truly amazing what can be created. We tired out before doing all the exhibits. You can spend a long time there.

A ticket to the Corning Museum of Glass allows you access for two consecutive days, and we can see why! We extended our visit to a second day and we loved every minute of it. We were impressed with the variety of activities that are appropriate for all ages: demonstrations, Ask Me carts, interactive displays, and traditional museum galleries with... More
